It's no surprise that Plaza Midwood is one of the hippest hoods in Charlotte. Many of up frequent the shops, eateries and bars there on a regular basis. What we don't always get a chance to see are the living spaces of the folks who call Plaza Midwood home. That's where Midwood Maynia Festival and Home & Garden Tour — dubbed as Cinco de Maynia this year — comes in. Not only does it give Charlotteans a chance to mingle in the artsy community with live music (Jon Lindsay Band headlines) and activities (5K, pet parade and more), but also to admire the insides of some residents' pads. A church and one of Charlotte's oldest country clubs are part of the home tour, too. Proceeds benefit the Plaza Midwood Neighborhood Association and its initiatives.

Price: Tickets are $15 (available in front of Kilgo Methodist Church, 2101 Belvedere Ave.)
